“Stay at La Terra, Ostuni”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

Being just by myself, I had a fantastic stay at this hotel where I felt like home. Nice and warm welcome and sincere attention to people.
I had a room on the terass and a fantastic view on the roofs of Ostuni. The owners have been really helpful as regarding my food restrictions and really cared about me always makingvsure that everything was ok.

We spent four nights in Ostuni, in low season (February): La Torre is excellent value for money, nice and comfortable rooms, tasteful decoration, good breakfeast, very friendly and helpful staff. Definitely a strong recommendation. The Hotel's restaurant was closed, but its menu looked mouthwatering...

We loved the Hotel La Terra during our 2-night stay last week. The hotel's restoration work is first-class, resulting in a warren of rooms arranged in what at first seems to be a confusing pattern but later becomes intriguing and special.

Our room was a triple just over the hotel entrance with plenty of room to spread out, at least 50% larger than a typical room. The arched roof and the enormously thick masonry walls gave us the quietest 2 nights of sleep our grown family of 3 had during our vacation. The street below our balconied window had no traffic to speak of and no wandering revelers late at night in this magical ancient town. The relaxing view of the cobbled street below was an additional joy as one could drink in the ambience while watching the strolling couples from one floor above. Not all of the rooms have balconies, we just got lucky.

Omar happily went out of his way to make sure we knew how to find all the special areas of the hotel. One night our family took advantage of one of the two upstairs public terraces for a sunset session enjoying the view of Ostuni while sampling some of the wine and cheese we'd bought on our trip. Great memories already.

You can see from other reviews that the parking situation is special. We had absolutely no trouble with it since the staff goes out of their way in every respect to ferry you or your car to and from a clean and safe location. The luggage rolling distance is 50meters on a nearly-level cobbled street - the car comes to you and the staff is happy to help you with luggage. Remember to arrange for car recovery timing as you take breakfast on your outgoing day.

What's more, as we drove away from Ostuni after checking out we noticed that someone had thoughtfully wiped our rental car's formerly-filthy windscreen absolutely clean without us having asked. Delightful and appreciated!

Everything worked just as we hoped it would, even exceeding our expectations for this hidden gem of a tourist town. We would definitely book the Hotel La Terra again.

This is a lovely hotel in a great location in the " white " town of Ostuni. From the moment we arrived in town, everyone was so helpful. The owner met us and led us to the parking garage and then drove us to the hotel which was a great convenience (try dealing with these ancient old towns on your own!!!!). Alessandro, the manager, had been so helpful when I was making the reservation. Fausta, at reception, could not have been more friendly and kind.. In fact, the entire staff, the cleaning help, the driver, all went out of their way to make our stay so nice.
Our room was attractive, comfortable, clean and next to a terrace with terrific view. A perfect place to relax at the end of the day. We loved our visit to Ostuni.

Hotel La Terra is well located to enjoy Ostuni, and a good place to use as a base for exploring the region, or for visiting the beaches.

Having got very lost trying to find the hotel, a call to them meant there was soon a friendly face who lead us to the hotel car park (5Euro a day) and then took us onto the hotel. (The hotel will also take you back to the car park with your bags at the end of the stay). The car park is only a 5 minute walk from the hotel for when you use your car during your stay.

Located in the Centro Storico of Ostuni, the hotel is excellently located for exploring the city, and for using the many bars and restaurants nearby, plus visiting the historical sights of Ostuni such as it's churches and cathedral.

Service throughout was friendly and professional.

Visiting during a very hot spell of weather, the air con in the hotel and room was efficient and appreciated.

Our room was a decent size, very clean, with a good size shower room. Best of all was a view across the city over the roofs.

The hotel, although modern, had characterful touches throughout. A roof terrace just outside our room, another elsewhere, plus the cave like bar with well.
Second floor rooms have some rather grandly furnished rooms close by, plus a terrace

Although centrally located, there was little or no noise.

Breakfast was fine. The hotel restaurant was not functioning whilst we were staying there - not a problem due to the large number of other options to eat locally.

If ever visiting Ostuniin the future I'd stay here again

Room Tip: Rooms on the 3rd floor can have good views. Don't miss out on exploring the old city of Ostuni

The hotel is really quite impressive, meaning the building id beautiful and full of little quirky bits that u just dont see from a modern building...the restoration work really couldnt be faulted, and its lovely...

Now, the actual hotel... Firstly, for the money I would personally think that u should get a.bit.more.. Like really comfy pillows (they weren't), or a flat screen tv thatis bigger than a 19 inch (didnt have a tv remote either), thick towels, free parking, etc, etc...

That being said, there was nothing wrong with the hotel or the stay, just feels like there are parts missing that would make u really feel that u were in a boutique hotel.

The room was not tiny, not massive - perfectly reasonable. Breakfast had all the usual continential choices. Staff were visable without being annoying. So, yeah, good hotel, great location (not sure there are even that many other choices of hotel) in a lovely little town.

The hotel is really well located. Right in the center of the "Città Bianca" . The staff is definetely kind, efficient, professional and attentive. Rooms are rather spatious (on request ) and wonderfully mixing ancient charme and modern comfort .The hotel restaurant worths a visit ; pretty good quality/price ratio . Few improving points would be : better parking facilities , fancier technology equipments (TV rather small, Wi-Fi connection unavailable unless in the common spaces , small shower ) .
